During our blistering Arizona summers, what’s better than taking a jump into a refreshing pool that takes the edge off that heat? Running across a green lawn to make that jump. Choosing to replace your lawn with Turf Monsters’ artificial turf will multiply your fun and safety while looking fresh and clean all summer long and here’s why:
1. You Won’t Slip Or Slide On Synthetic Grass
Turf made from fibers that are non-slip a material increases the safety of the space around your pool. As a better alternative to concrete stones or pool decking, artificial grass carpets don’t reach the same temperatures under the AZ sun, so you can walk around flip-flop free and not have to go immediately from the patio to the pool. Turf Monsters’ natural looking lawn contains no sharp edges or breakable pieces that can often become a hazard for children and pets. So when the water gets to splashing from those “chicken fights” and the kids are running around shooting squirt guns, there will be no more slips, falls, bumps, bruises, or burns.
2. Faux Lawn Never Gets Muddy
With an organic grass lawn surrounding your pool, mud and puddles forming is inevitable. Standing water can attract unwanted insects that make your front or backyard their new home, and they often sneak their way into yours. When people are going in and out of the house from the pool and lawn, not only will grass and chlorine end up on your floors, but along with it, ants and other bugs too. With Turf Monsters’ synthetic sod around your pool, it will reduce the mud, dirt, bugs and more that would otherwise end up inside your house and pool!
3. Synthetic Fibers Are Long-Lasting & Always Green
From the puddles splashed water make, brown spots of dead and over watered grass will soon appear on an organic lawn. To repair this, you would have to spend more money on reseeding, and deal with the hassle of keeping family and friends away from those specific patches until they grow back; but that doesn’t make for a very fun pool party. Fake turf installed by Turf Monsters will stay green for the whole summer, many years to come. Through hundreds of slip n slides, BBQs, and cannonball contests, your artificial lawn will still look pristine and healthy, perfect for any backyard party.

How does artificial grass around a pool compare to natural grass?
Artificial grass around a pool is a low-maintenance and durable option compared to natural grass. Unlike natural grass, it doesn’t require constant watering, mowing, or fertilizing. It also won’t attract insects, which is particularly important around a pool. Plus, artificial grass stays green all year round, providing a lush and vibrant look without the need for regular upkeep.
Can artificial grass get too hot around a pool area?
One concern about artificial grass is that it may become too hot, making it uncomfortable to walk on barefoot. While it’s true that artificial grass can absorb heat, there are ways to mitigate this issue. You can choose a lighter-colored grass, which reflects more light and heat. Additionally, you can install a cooling system underneath the grass, which circulates cool air to keep the surface comfortable.

Additionally, artificial grass is designed to be slip-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about anyone slipping and falling around the pool.
How does artificial grass impact the environment around a pool?
Artificial grass has a positive impact on the environment around a pool. Unlike natural grass, it doesn’t require regular watering, which conserves water resources. Additionally, it doesn’t need to be mowed or fertilized, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions from lawn care equipment. Plus, since artificial grass is made of recycled materials, it helps to reduce waste in landfills.
